FREE online training course use an AED (Automatic Exterior Defibrillator)

Posted on: 6th March 2018 | No Comments

The Town Council has supplied and maintains two defibrillators, one outside Costcutter in Pendeen and one outside the Town Council Office in St Just. These are accessible 24/7, and are for use in a cardiac arrest.

Although no training is necessary to use an AED (Automatic Exterior Defibrillator), some people are concerned that they wouldn’t know what to do. We can recommend a FREE online training course which you can do in your own time in your own home, or at St Just Llibrary or the Centre of Pendeen if you don’t have your own internet access.

These online courses are quick and helpful, presenting facts simply and clearly, and giving you little quizzes at the end of each of two modules. You can download the answers to the quizzes after doing them, and you even get a certificate when you have completed the course!

The first two modules have 5 units each. Module 3 has videos of two real-life examples of CPR and AEDs being used. I found these films particularly valuable in demonstrating what I had learned in the modules, and would really recommend you watch them.

and this link for the specific AED course:

http://www.firstaidforfree.com/online-automated-external-defibrillator-aed-course/

 

These are free and easy to access (just ensure you don’t click any of the adverts by mistake!) and you have only to register an account with them. These courses can give you more confidence to cope in an emergency.

Go on, give it a try – and let us know how you get on.

The Second Neighbourhood Plan Public Meeting held in Pendeen on 17th January 2018 Report

Posted on: 31st January 2018 | No Comments

It was good to see over seventy people turn out, despite miserable weather, including quite a few who were attending for the first time.  The meeting split into four discussion groups.Plans are now progressing for these four groups to meet again, as follows:

  • Steering Group – details awaited from James Hardy (Community Link Manager)
  • Community Engagement Task Group – meeting in the Council Office, St Just, on Wednesday 31st January at 7pm
  • Natural Environment Task Group – meeting in the Council Office, St Just, on Wednesday 7th February at 7pm
  • Built Environment Task Group – meeting in the Council Office, St Just, on Thursday 8th February at 7pm

Each group will now proceed to form a more formal ‘committee’ and will need a Chairperson, Vice Chair, and Secretary to take notes and produce them, and each Task Group will report to the Steering Group.  If you are interested in being a part of one of these groups, please come along to the appropriate meeting. If you are unable to attend but wish to register your interest in one of the groups, please let me know. Thank you again for your interest.  Please get in touch if you want to know more, or if you wish to be removed from the mailing list.
